The negotiation between Chelsea and Andreas Christensen has been on for some months, the Blues would like to extend the contract of the Danish defender.
If Chelsea is not able to convince Christensen to sign a new contract with the club, he could join a new team at the end of the ongoing season for free.
Andreas Christensen has been with Chelsea for several years, he had played for several clubs on loan before breaking into the first team at Chelsea.
Some fans were skeptical of him adapting to the physicality of the English Premier League, Christensen has worked hard to become an established member of one of the top football clubs in EPL.
While there is still a likelihood of him signing a new deal before the season runs out, Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona are keen to sign him up.
Andreas Christensen has the right to settle for the best offer available for him during the transfer window, it could turn out to be a great decision for Andreas Christensen to stay back at Chelsea for the following reasons.
- Thomas Tuchel’s factor: Andreas Christensen was a fringe player before the German tactician was made the coach of Chelsea, he had struggled at Stamford Bridge under the tutelage of different coaches.
The use of the 3-4-2-1/3-5-2 formation preferred by Thomas Tuchel is suited to Andreas Christensen’s style of play. He is a ball-playing defender who can initiate the attack for his team right from the backline. The use of central midfielders and wing-backs to occupy the space in midfield helps to cover the weaknesses in his game. Christensen tends to struggle against physical opponents and a team that plays a direct style of football.
- Christensen may want to try another club due to reasons best known to him, the Danish defender should learn from top stars who left their former club to become a flop in another team.
